Destiny Etiko is one of the well-known faces in the Nollywood movie industry. Destiny Etiko, who is classy, bold, and attractive, has carved out a niche for herself in the industry, progressively gaining recognition with over 570k likes on Facebook and over 4.2M on Instagram.
Destiny Etiko was born and bred in Udi, a prominent town in Enugu, into a family of five, with three brothers and a sister. She is the family’s second child, born on August 12, 1989. Destiny attended Zik Avenue Primary School and Queens School for her primary and secondary schooling, respectively.
Destiny Etiko developed an interest in acting at a young age, wanting to follow in the footsteps of her mother, who had to give up performing to raise her family. She joined the Action Guild of Nigeria in Enugu state while still in secondary school, which was her first venture into the Nollywood industry. Destiny Etiko then began attending movie auditions and doing modest roles in films, where her ability gradually emerged.
Destiny Etiko discovered her love at a young age and relocated to Akwa, Anambra, where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre Arts from Nnamdi Azikiwe University in 2012.
Destiny Etiko began her acting career in high school, inspired by her mother. Destiny’s unique and outstanding acting skills were on display when she took the lead role in “Idemili,” an epic tragedy film that shows old Igbo culture, mystics, and values directed by Ernest Obi and produced by Onye-Eze Productions. Her acting career has taken off since she had a breakthrough role in this film. She has taken on more leading parts, making her a powerful force in the industry.
Destiny Etiko is not married, and she has stated that people should stop equating her success with males because she works really hard and receives various brand ambassadorial engagements.
“It’s ironic because I work for money and get wonderful endorsements.” If it is simple for men to contribute money to one another, then go and collect money from men. I work, I make money, and some people like me.
“I recently signed an endorsement agreement with a Chinese company that sells sanitary pads and baby diapers.” People will claim that if I achieve something tomorrow, it was given to me by a guy. Allow them to continue speaking. Even if I don’t achieve anything, the same people will claim that despite all of the films I’ve been in, I haven’t done anything for myself. I’m not going to take it seriously.”
Destiny Etiko mentioned in another interview that she wants to marry a man who understands her passion for acting. She also stated that she is not willing to give up her work for any reason, including marriage or any man.
Destiny Etiko has an adopted daughter named Chinenye Eucharia.
